I have never taken Life
Yet I have often paid the price
And you, you are a victim of this age
And the guilt that hangs around your neck
Has got me locked up in a cage

You've got to learn to live until no end
But first you must learn to swim
All over again
Because...

Pain lies on the riverside
And Pain will never say goodbye
Pain Lies on the Riverside
So put you feet in the water
Put your head in the water
Put your soul in the water
And join me for a swim tonight

I have forever, always tried
To stay clean and constantly baptized
I am aware that the river's banks are dry
And to wait for a flood
Is to wait for life

I've got to learn to live until no end
But first I must learn to swim all
Over again,
Because...

Pain lies on the Riverside.

Brilliant.

Waves of violet go crashing and laughing
Rainbow winged singing birds fly round the sun
Sunbells rain down in a liquid profusion
Mermaids on porpoises draw up the dawn

What's become of the baby
This cold December morning?


Songbirds
frozen in their flight
drifting to the earth
remnants of forgotten dreaming
Calling...
answer comes there none
Go to sleep you child
Dream of never ending always


Panes of crystal
Eyes sparkle like waterfalls
lighting the polished ice caverns of Khan
But where in the looking-glass fields of illusion
wandered the child who was perfect as dawn?


What's become of the Baby
this cold December morning?


Racing
rhythms of the sun
all the world revolves
captured in the eye of Odin
Allah
Pray where are you now?
All Mohammed's men
blinded by the sparkling water


Sheherazade gathering stories to tell
from primal gold fantasy petals that fall
But where is the child
who played with the sun chimes
and chased the cloud sheep
to the regions of rhyme?


Stranded
cries the south wind
Lost in the regions of lead
Shackled by chains of illusion
Delusions of living and dead

Oh yeah
Stay in the general area (area, area, area)
Stay in the general area [etc]

What's the name of this stuff?

Meat, meat, gimme my meat
Meat, meat, gimme my meat
Meat, meat, gimme my meat
[etc]

Hello, talk
Talk, talk, talk

Stay in the general area

The barbed wire whipping party in the razor blade forest
Sweet live meat, my fangs could unravel you
Back, hand, whip, lash, [eskers], sange froid, leather picnic
Duty, cold blood, barbed wire, naked on the table, laughing
Feet stained wine and eyes smoking
No is permitted
There's more freedom than you could choke down in ten thousand years

The other day I went to Mars and talked to God
And he told me to tell you to hang tight and don't worry
The solution to everything is death

Don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh well...oh well

[assume you know that was not directed at you; would have been a great set of lyrics for the first response in this thread]

"Mulligan Goes To War"

He graduated with a degree in Poli-Sci
Premeditated what he would do until he died
And then he faded into a never-rising sky
Surfaced in the airforce, then learned how to fly

Mulligan goes to war
Mulligan goes to war
The days are gone
when he could tell you what he's fighting for
Mulligan goes to war

Flew helicopters with a patriotic grin
Built up brick walls, rarely letting people in
Had his pitfalls and he lived a life of sin
That life is over now, the new one must begin

Mulligan goes to war
Mulligan goes to war
The days are gone
when he could tell you what he's fighting for
Mulligan goes to war

We all gotta go sometimes

Made his living selling real estate
Met his first wife, she came much too late
To save the low man, he was slowly growing mad
He lost his business, the economy went bad

Mulligan goes to war
Mulligan goes to war
The days are gone
when he could tell you what he's fighting for
Mulligan goes to war

"Sister Ray"

Duck and Sally inside
They're cooking for the down five
Who're staring at Miss Rayon
Who's busy licking up her big man
I'm searching for my mainline
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
Ah, it's just like Sister Ray says

Rosy and Miss Rayon
They're busy waiting for her booster
Who just got back from Carolina
She said she didn't like the weather
They're busy waiting for her Sailor
Who said he's just as big as ever
He's just here from Alabama
He wants to know a way to earn a dollar
I'm searching for my mainline
I couldn't hit it sideways
Ah, just like Sister Ray said

Cecil's got his new piece
He cocks and shoots between three and four
He aims it at the Sailor
Shoots him down dead on the floor
Oh, you shouldn't do that
Don't you know you'll stain the carpet
Don't you know you'll stain the carpet
And by the way man, have you got a dollar
Oh no man, I haven't got the time time
Too busy sucking on a ding dong
She's too busy sucking on my ding dong
Oh, she does it just like Sister Ray said
I'm searching for my mainline
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
I couldn't hit it sideways
Oh, just like, just like Sister Ray says

Now, who's that knocking
Who's that knocking on my chamber door
Now could it be the police
They've come to take me for a ride ride
Oh, but I haven't got the time time
Too busy sucking on my ding dong
She's too busy sucking on my ding dong
Oh, now, just like Sister Ray said
I'm searching on my line
I couldn't hit it sideways
I couldn't hit it sideways
Oh now, just like, just like, just like.....
Sister Ray says.

good one. turtle depot is my favorite. ernie made me listen to it on white blotter and I had a better trip then the overkill, hellhammer, destruction trip that little grateful Dan had to save me from. never saw the irony in it being little Dan(found real friends after bad trip), and the other deadheads at the pavillion that night that broke the spell of my bad ernie destruction trip. yo ,throw up a peace sign, howza bout some bacon?
